What I liked
I had 2 really sweet midwives who were so overwhelmingly nice. i wish i knew their names, but i was in such distress i did not take note of them.
What could be improved
i came into womens healthcare for some blood tests because of threatened miscarriage and without even asking my name or anything a man walked in the room and demanded i tell him where i was from and my plans for the future. he judged me because i have an accent. i am an english citizen and he judged me because i lived abroad when i was younger. during this sensitive time of a miscarriage the last thing i expected was someone to badger me about my accent, tell me i was lying, and be so rude. it was a horrible experience. when i was admitted to the hospital i found the care quite better with some very caring staff who were helpful in reducing anxiety. when i went back for another recheck however, the doctor had no idea what she was doing, and in front of me and my husband she said to the nurse "what should we do with the patient in this situation?" i could not believe the doctor was asking the nurse what to do. that made me lose trust in the hospital completely. i remain worried about giving birth there later this year.
